Parc X Trio is a Montreal-based contemporary jazz trio featuring Gabriel Vinuela, Alex Lefaivre, and Alain Bourgeois. To celebrate its ten-year anniversary, Parc X Trio is releasing its seventh recording, Dream. Pursuing the electric trio format, the group's latest musical explorations showcase their typical original blend of contemporary jazz harmonies, staggering dynamics, and break-beat grooves over odd time signatures and classical music structures.

As complex as the music might seem on paper, the trio navigates through the material effortlessly with grace and power. New to the table is the group's foray into studio production. A subtle and tasteful approach to electronic music production spices up the album sonically over the nine original compositions from all three members. One of the album's highlights is a reworking of Tchaikovsky's theme from Swan Lake where Parc X Trio's sonic imprint takes the original classic into the 21st century.
